BJP raps INDIA bloc over DMK min’s remarks against PM

New Delhi/Chennai, March 24: Accusing Tamil Nadu minister Anitha Radhakrishnan of making derogatory remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP lashed out at the INDIA bloc on Sunday, saying the conscience of those in the opposition alliance “is dead”.
K Annamalai, the BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit president, alleged that DMK leaders have reached a new low in their “uncouth behaviour” and said his party would take up the matter with the Election Commission and the Director General of Police seeking the “strictest and immediate action” against Radhakrishnan.
Posting on ‘X’ a purported video clip of the DMK leader’s remarks, the BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit alleged that Radhakrishnan “spoke disgustingly” about Modi in the presence of DMK MP K Kanimozhi and others who witnessed the “nauseating act”, and alleged that it reflected the “vulgar political culture” of the ruling party in the state.
Addressing a press conference in the national capital, BJP leader and Union minister Anurag Thakur strongly condemned Radhakrishnan’s remarks against the prime minister and said there is no place for such language in democracy. “When destruction befalls man, it is the conscience which dies first. The conscience of those in ‘INDI alliance’ is dead,” Thakur told reporters at the BJP headquarters.
He said this clearly showed the “hatred” of the INDIA bloc against Modi.
“One of their ministers yesterday hurled dirty abuses at Prime Minister Modi, made derogatory comments against the prime minister using objectionable words, in the presence of a woman MP of the party,” Thakur said.
“With Radhakrishnan’s remarks, the total number of abuses hurled at Prime Minister Modi by the opposition leaders has reached 120,” the BJP leader said. (PTI)
